Actor Ji Hyun Woo barely finished serving his military duty before he had to deny rumors that he and actress Yoo In Na had broken up.
The rumors spread quickly because the actress did not appear at an event marking the end of his military service. Hundreds of fans attended and some noticed that Yoo In Na was not present. When he was asked why she did not attend the event he said it was a tough question to answer. And because he was so vague, people assumed the couple had broken up.
The couple met on the set of "Queen Inhyun's Man," when she played an actress playing Queen Inhyun and he was a time-traveling scholar who believed in the cause of the real Queen Inhyun. His character falls in love with hers and longs to stay in the present with her but conflicts in the past keep drawing him back. The drama contained one of k-drama's most famous food kisses: the spaghetti kiss.
During cast interviews for the drama Ji Hyun Woo shocked the press by declaring that he was in love with Yoo In Na. The actors' agencies made no statement about whether or not they were really dating. But shortly after the two were photographed on a late night date, Yoo In Na confirmed their relationship. On a radio show the next day, she said, "We decided that he will stop being Inhyun's Man and instead, start being Yoo In Na's Man."
He enlisted for his mandatory military service less than two months after that declaration.
Have they grown apart while he was in service? Since he enlisted Yoo In Na's star has only risen further. She was last seen as Jun Ji Hyun's frenemy in the wildly successful "You Who Came From The Stars?" She also serves as an emcee on the KBS Cool FM's "Yo In Na's Volume Up" and hosts OnStyle's "Get It Beauty." She's currently filming "Wedding Bible" in China.
Her agency told Newsen that the actress' busy schedule is to blame for her absence at Ji Hyun Woo's event.
"Yoo In Na has a busy schedule, including narrating a documentary, so she could not make it to Ji Hyun Woo's event. Due to her movie filming, Yoo In Na is traveling back and forth between Korea and China. When she returns to Korea, she is busy with her domestic schedule. Although she wasn't able to attend Ji Hyun Woo's event, the two are still dating."
Ji Hyun Woo will soon also be busy as he has plans to star in a new drama "Trot Lovers." The Monday-Tuesday night drama will air in June.
